Taste profile from the winemaker: "A semi-dry, white table wine with mellow round fruitiness and delicate subtleties. A blend of white Muscadine, usually Welder and Carlos."

ABC Wines review: This pale yellow wine made from traditional Floridian grapes has an herbal honey aroma with some tropical fruit notes. The palate is semi-dry and rather smooth, similar in flavor and style to a Washington State riesling. The finish is slightly sweet but otherwise unremarkable. Try this wine with chicken or vegetable satays and a peanut sauce. Our score: We didn't know what to expect having never experienced wine from Florida and were pleasantly surprised. Above Average.
